Found at the mouth of the major River Elbe is the port town of Brunsbuttel. This small settlement surrounds the western opening of the magnificent Kiel Canal, a man-made waterway that stretches across the entire width of the northern tip of Germany. There are ten daily Elb Link sailings to Cuxhaven from the port.
What does Brunsbuttel have to offer?
Though established as an industrial powerhouse in the 1960s, Brunsbuttel has retained its status as a quiet riverside community. Green parks offer prime views across the canal and towards the miscellany of ships that pass, while the ivy-covered town hall is a prominent feature in the centre of town. As well as having one of the busiest artificial canals in the world the town is also the host of the Mud Olympics.
What transport links are available?
Travelling to and from the port can prove difficult. Bus services are limited and the nearest train station is found in the town of Wilster 10-miles away. The major city of Hamburg is just an hour and a half drive east along the B5 and A23 motorways. Here you will find an international airport and transport links that lead across the rest of Germany
What about the port?
The port of Brunsbuttel is large, though much of the space is dedicated to handling commercial cargo rather than serving passengers. Facilities at the ferry terminal are scarce, the area consisting of nothing more than a car park and a long pier that extends from the north bank of the river. An Elb-Link service leaves the port multiple times each day, heading the short trip west across the mouth of the River Elbe to the German port of Cuxhaven on the opposite bank.
Cuxhaven is an independent town and seat of the Cuxhaven district in Lower Saxony, Germany, situated on the shore of the North Sea at the mouth of the Elbe River. Its town quarters Duhnen, Döse and Sahlenburg are especially popular vacation spots on the North Sea.
The origins of tourism in this area date back to 1816 when a seaside resort was founded in Cuxhaven, and Cuxhaven has been a state-recognised climate seaside resort and centre of the holiday region of Cuxland ever since 1964. With just over 50,000 citizens, Cuxhaven is not a very large city. However, the area boasts roughly 3 million booked nights a year, making it one of the largest seaside resorts in Germany.
The fishing industry and the harbour are the two other main traditional businesses in Cuxhaven. The city has made great investments in the modernisation and expansion of the port facilities during the recent years.
